I bought this game... and it is fine, weren`t for a "tiny" detail... IT IS HARD! I played it solo, and it is basically impossibile with doom token rules to beat it (just 2 cards to get a doom token!). We tried 4 players and it took for us 3 HOURS to see a couple of heroes advance one level. Is there some strategy, or did we miss something? The game looks ok, but next time I would have it with the shorter version (not 4 players 3 xp to level, but the 5 player thing - 2xp (Yes I know that it is like cheating... but it really takes AGES!). Also, rules about being knocked out are pretty frustrating, when you have to lose at least 1 ally and one item (I will use next time the soft knockout... in this case, do I have to lose gold?).
Oh one more question...
If, say, I have a hero card that tells me I can spend 1 wound to inflict PLUS ONE damage, can lose plus than one life on the same attack to raise my bonus?
Similarly, what happens with allys with this kind of powers? If a power says, you can exhaust 1 to get a bonus, can I encrease the bonus just getting more exhausting tokens?
